Like Father, Like Son: The Cutest Matching Board Shorts

My husband has a tendency to “accidentally” match my son — resulting in the most adorable mini-me duo walking hand-in-hand down the sidewalk.

And I melt.

I’m typically not for the matchy/matchy clothing trend, but there’s something about a little boy matching the man he looks up to. And if they’re matching on the beach? In the sand? While building a sand castle? Dear lord.

Take a look at these adorable matching board shorts for Daddy and his boy:

  • Red and Blue Octopus 1 of 8
    matching swimwear for dad and son

    Besides coming in fun matching patterns (for a variety of personality types), the Tom & Teddy swimwear is salt water and chlorine resistant, UV protected, and quick drying.

  • Blue and Silver Octopus 2 of 8

    For those who prefer coordinated over matchy matching, most Tom & Teddy designs come in alternative color patterns.

  • Blue and White Fish 3 of 8

    Another option: Coordinate a pattern with a solid — like the Blue & White Fish men's trunks with the Malibu Blue boy's trunks.
